Reviews - What do customers think about KJV Standard Text Edition (Black French Morocco Leather)?
An quality personal sized bible Mar 2, 2007
I ordered the Cambridge KJV Standard Text Edition Burgundy French Morocco Leather Edition (43). This particular bible is handsomely constructed, especially considering the price. The leather cover, while slightly stiff and similar in appearance to bonded leather, is actually very high quality and you are able to immediately open the bible flat at any page. The binding, while apparently glued looks sewn and the end papers are heavy and glossy, while the pages are made of a thicker paper than "onion". The overall size is about 6.5" X 8.9" X 1.5" and this makes it a very portable version. A handy guide to the meaning of many archaic words is included in the back pages as are some typically colorful maps.
In appearance, the text font is rather traditional, but highly readable; the text is arranged in the typical two column, verse format. The text size is about a 10 point type, I'd say. What is really nice is how clean the pages appear, with only the Word of God on them; not a single note or reference mark.
While I enjoy a reference bible, the keys and alternate meanings distract from the reading flow. Some will quibble about the limited editing in this version (Saviour vs Savior, bason vs basin), but the structure and translation remain true to the original. So, if you're looking for the authorized King James Version and want it presented without man's interpretations, this is a highly recommended printing.
KJV Bible ...the BEST! Feb 12, 2007
When I told my husband I had ordered me this Bible he immediately said "order me one also!"...which I did. We are soooooo happy with these Bibles. They are VERY nice. We love the fact that there are NO...yes I mean NO side notes and references which is quite refreshing. To have a Bible with The Word and not others input is very encouraging. Quality is fabulous!! I want to buy another one but I know that this one will probably last as long as I do. You can't beat it!!
KING JAMES VERSION LARGE PRINT TEXT BIBLE Jan 4, 2007
I GOOFED WHEN I BOUGHT THIS. WISH I WOULD HAVE LOOKED FOR ONE WITH CHAPTERS INDENTED WHICH WOULD HAVE MADAE IT EASIER TO FIND AND WITH THE LORD'S WORDS IN RED PRINT.
Very Nice. Nov 7, 2006
bought it for the old man, he says he likes it a lot. the large print for easy reading, and the leather makes it feel like it was right out of a well kept church. so if you're looking for something classy for people with vision problems, well then this is the book you probably want.
King James version Holy Bible Jul 26, 2006
This is the text I love the best and it is easy to read and with the words of Jesus in red. My only criticism in that the corners of the cover tend to bend - they are made of cardboard which is not as durable as leather, for which I would have paid more. However, it is very good value, and the delivery was as swift as ever.
